If you are suffering from making a component that takes a very long time … There is a solution that I discovered lately … before opening any file just open a blank SketchUp file, then make a simple rectangle and make a component out of this rectangle, after that don’t close this blank file with rectangle component, just go to file and open any big file that you want to work with and now start to make any component you will find that it will create it in just a second … It’s a magic trick. Try it and write back your thoughts here.
What version of SketchUp are you using? Please complete your profile.
Doesn’t work for me as of today
